With more than 1 million new fleet registrations taking place every single year, company fleet vehicles account for more than half of all new car sales in the UK. If yours is one of these businesses and you’re looking to add vehicles to your list of assets, you’ll need to give some careful consideration to what you’re going to go for… Seeing as the 2016 budget has confirmed that company vehicles will continue to be taxed according to their CO2 emissions, it makes sense for you to buy a low-emission model, so here are three of the most eco friendly vehicles available for your fleet right now…
1. Best for businesses needing to invest in a fleet of small vans:
If you need a fleet of vans for your business, you should consider investing in a number of Ford Transit Couriers. ‘Next Green Car’ gives the Ford Transit Courier Kombi 1.5 TDCi 75PS a rating of 32, making it one of the greenest vehicles available in the small vans class. It has a top speed of 96 miles per hour, costs only 6.5 to 8.8 pence per mile to drive, and with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km, this van sits nicely in the Car Tax Band A. Check out leasevan.co.uk for a number of vans available for hire, including a great range of Ford models.
2. Best for businesses looking to invest in a fleet of city cars:
If you and your colleagues need a vehicle to buzz around the city in, running business errands, nipping out to meetings and visiting clients, you might want to consider leasing a fleet of BMW i3s. The BMW i3 is an electric car with premium design values, and has won Auto Express’ Green Car of the Year twice in a row. Its battery life and reserve fuel tank is only suitable for a 160-mile round trip at a push, but its EcoPro+ mode and exemption from benefit-in-kind company car tax and the London congestion charge make it a green choice worth consideration. See if you qualify for the Government’s £5,000 plug-in car grant if you need some extra cash for one of these vehicles.
3. Best for businesses that want to buy a fleet of commuter cars:
Golfs are popular with all drivers, and are now a viable option for eco-conscious purchasers too. Golfs are renowned for their great engines, fantastic handling and sure-footed responses, and the Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion is all of these things… and more.
Without compromising on the classic features of a standard Golf, the BlueMotion boasts extra fuel economy, zero Corporation Tax and and only 85g/km of CO2 emissions, making it the perfect choice for an eco-friendly company fleet.
It travels comfortably with plenty of acceleration for motorways, making it a great vehicle for team members commuting up and down the country to keep business running as usual, but won’t break the bank or feel like you’re reducing on quality in a bid to look after the planet.
